Victim is a French citizen.


 A 23-year-old French citizen, who is in Madison for a visit, was knocked unconscious on State St. early this morning. Witnesses said the victim had stopped to talk with a couple of people in the 500 block when a man (described above) punched the victim in the head. The blow sent the victim to the pavement. A Madison man with whom the victim is staying said the person who delivered the blow - and another man - wanted to know if he "wanted some too." He did not. The suspect and his friend fled as police were called. The victim suffered a chipped tooth and an abrasion to the back of his head.
